CRC 1316 Transient Atmospheric Plasmas: From Plasmas to Liquids To Solids


Workshop Electrochemistry

The team of the PI Timo Jacob at University Ulm organized a workshop on the basics and applications of electrochemistry. The similarity to plasma science is striking, with the Debye-Hückel theory being at the core of both systems - plasmas and electrochemistry in the electrolyte. Nevertheless, significant differences exist because the boundary layer in the electrolyte in front of an electrode is much more complex than in a plasma sheath region. The workshop topics ranged from a general introduction to electrochemistry to methods to electro catalysis up to the theoretical modeling of electrochemical processes.
